Violent clashes between yellow vest protesters and riot police in Lyon

Yellow Vests protesters clashed with police in Lyon on Saturday in the 14th consecutive weekend of protests across the country.

Footage shows chaotic scenes in the city centre as police reportedly fired tear gas to disperse protesters who threw projectiles and set street furniture on fire.

The "yellow vest" protests began in mid-November over fuel taxes.

Even though the French authorities later suspended the tax hikes and announced an increase to the minimum wage, protests have continued throughout France.
